backup software

can you please share with me a software that can be installed in the server/client  and have the ability to backup users files into the NAS automatically.

I will appreciate if that software is free.

I use Acronis True Image. It is not free. It is good and I have used it for about five years.

For a simple file backup you could look at "Second Copy". It is cheap and reliable.

If you have already purchase a NAS, then you can use the built-in windows Backup utility.

With Windows Pro. You can backup to the Network.

Some NAS like http://www.drobo.com/solutions/for-professionals/storage-and-backup.php come with its own software which you could use.

You can check some of these. You might want to look at NASBACKUP first.

Allwaysync is a great FREE program for this (they offer a pro version if you need very frequent/large loads of syncing too):

http://allwaysync.com/download.html

You can setup LOTS of rules and SYNC the contents of user files to respective subdirectories etc. & setup automatic backup, timed backup, etc. DIFFERENTIAL syncing saves LOADS of time.

You can setup for 2-way (mirror) or 1-way (push) sync setup. It also allows for NAS / Network folder username/password settings.

Thanks all but I know all these paid softwares and I am looking for free software.

Actually I setup folder redirection on my server but the server storage cannot store all users files then there is A NAS that I have in the here and I took to use NAS backup option  instead of folder redirection so I need to get a software that can push the clients to backup their files into NAS .
